Mexican
Chido and Padre’s celebrates Baja Mexico’s fresh, coastal cuisine while bringing the fun festive atmosphere back to Buckhead. Our elevated fare includes fresh seafood and mesquite grilled meats paired with bold, authentic flavors from Mexico. Our cocktails are hand-crafted with fresh squeezed juices with flavors inspired by Mexican artists and damn good tequila. FRESH. FUN. CURIOUS. Chido and Padre are the personification of the notion that opposites attract. Chido is the mischievous risk taker while Padre is the do-gooder voice of reason. Together they are the perfect pair; a unique blend that just works. We can all relate to both friends, but which one will you be tonight?

I really enjoyed my first time coming for lunch. The only (and I mean only) thing I can suggest for the restaurant is to work on the ceviche dish (no flavor). Other than that, salsa/guac and cocktails were delish! The service was outstanding. Seriously! I didn’t expect it from a very casual and chic spot! I would definitely come back (preferably happy hour)!

Drinks were inconsistent.

The decore is beautiful, but that's it.

I had a great experience! They switched my boyfriend and I’s order but both managers came over and apologized, and let us take the mix up home to go! The food was great and good for your money.

Table was set but dirty. Plate dirty. Mediocre menu. Less than mediocre food. Very small tacos. Tasteless guacamole. Best thing was hot chips and salsa. No reason to go back. Would not recommend to anyone.

We used to love this place but it has gotten complacent. Plates are expensive and contain a lot of cheap fillers, food is served lukewarm, service is absent including a bored management. It is our second bad experience in a row - we’re out! Buckhead has too many better options...

Food was fine. It certainly met our expectations. But it took an abnormally long time between placing our orders and getting our food. Which was somewhat strange since they looked about 75% full. Don't see it as somewhere we'd put on our restaurant rotation.

A really lively, fun place with great food. A young and noisy crowd. The service was a tad slow because it was so busy, but aside from that it was an excellent experience.

Super cute decor but the food was just not good. Had chicken mole enchiladas, friend had the smoked wings,ceviche didn’t taste fresh at all. The only thing we liked was the queso.Guac could use more flavor as well

First there was only the question if we want some chips and salsa etc. in every other Mexican restaurant I was before these kind of appetizers are for free but at the end we paid round about $40 for chips etc. and $10 for a small cup of guacamole are to much!
The main course was ok but the brought the wrong order and I had to wait for it in this time all my friends finished there plates.
The nice think was, at the other day was my birthday and I get one dessert for free.
So in total it was not a good evening and the relationship between price and quality are not on one level.

Food was cold and stale. Two of our final cocktails of the evening didn’t even have alcohol in them, but we were charged full price. I usually love this restaurant, but for the $150 we spent, it was NOT worth the price.

We went for a Falcons home game vs the Cowboys & there was only one small tv on the local sports team. The drinks were slow getting out with only three other couples in the restaurant for the start of brunch. Terrible ambiance for a gameday. We saw multiple patrons walk in & back out just due to the fact there was no one in the place for the start of the football game. Evidently word is out for the fact this is not a place to catch a game or have brunch. Granted the food & drinks were both good. This location is too good for there not to be more people here. It looks like Smokbelly Bbq did towards the end of its time.

Inventive Mexican food and drinks in a lively, casual environment. Service was excellent. They have a large outdoor seating area with heat lamps for cooler evenings. Great for a fun night out with friends or a casual date night.

Went to meet some friends. We had reservations, but didn’t seem to matter. We were sat in the bar area with TV’s all around even after asking to be moved. The self proclaimed AGM didn’t seem to know or care too much that we wanted a different table in the actual dining room. Not really the setting we expected. Margaritas were very average. Service was solid. Don’t desire to return.

My wife and I both had the shrimp enchiladas. Just awful. Terrible shrimp. Not local and not fresh with a sweet ketchupy sauce. I knew it was bad from the first bite, and should have left, but instead tried to eat part of it and then couldn’t sleep. Server was wanted to know if everything was perfect as I’m nearly gagging and then removed the chips while I was still eating them. This is a bar, not a restaurant.

My boyfriend and I went today for their Dia de los Muertos specials ($6 margs heyyyy). The restaurants aesthetic is amazing. I love that they were playing Mexican golden era movies and the Day of the Dead theme decor was on point. The service could have been better, but I assumed it was just crazy busy due to the event (at least that’s what i hope). The salsa for the chips was actually very good. We got an off the menu item, the Kitchen Sink nacho es. The concept was cool, but they could have tasted better. They were okay but probably wouldn’t care to order them again.

It was my 31st birthday, and from the moment my group walked through the door, we were treated with perfect service and an awesome vibe. Everyone from the host, to the manager, to our server were 10/10, and we were all impressed with the food and drinks. Dinner here and drinks beyond ;) were the highlight of my entire birthday weekend!
